The utimensat system call (sys_utimensat) in Linux kernel 2.6.22 and
other versions before 18.104.22.168 does not check file permissions when
certain UTIME_NOW and UTIME_OMIT combinations are used, which allows
local users to modify file times of arbitrary files, possibly leading
to a denial of service.
